I didn't have spark. I do have spark now. I have everything to make it run properly, Fuel, Air, ansd spark. And yes the stator is the module in the distributor, some consider it to be can sensor.

OK, so you have spark, compression and fuel. And I think you've replaced all the sensors you can replace, so now you go to mechanical issues. Pull the #1 spark plug and make sure that the piston is TDC when the distributor is at the #1 firing pin. This is checking to see if the timing is in order and that it hasn't skipped a beat.

Well, if you got all 3, and timing is good, then I'm at a loss for guessing.

Yeah, Good Luck. Im starting back at square 1. going to do Plug wires, Cap and Rotor again. with something from summit racing. Probably not the issue, but since Dodge Dealer, and my uncle's shop cant figure it out, gotta do something. Winter is approaching. Thinking my next step after this, is to buy another Ford.

Are there any codes thrown? My 2000 Dakota acted like that. Was the fuel pump. All the sensors that are changed did you check the wires to make sure nothing is shaking around ?

It's not throwing any codes at all. I replaced the fuel pump, even with the dealership stating that the Volume, and Pressure was great. And still no change at all.

I didn't have this problem initially, was just a no spark/no start issue. I fixed all that but now have this problem now as I stated in my original post. So I am now at the point of replacing the replaced parts (plug wires/distributor cap/rotor) and see if I can pinpoint an issue somewhere there. Ordered some better quality components from Summit Racing and they will be here on Wednesday. Hopefully I find time to get them on. Been working 7 days a week the last few weeks. =/

Does your truck have an EGR valve. Did you do a pressure test on the cats?

No it does not have EGR, and pissed me off. I spent an hour trying to find one, only to come to the internet and find out Dodge had stopped putting them in, so was time wasted.

The cat is brand new, well now about 4 or 5 weeks old. I work 2nd shift, so I am up all night and sleep most of the day away. I have been trying to get back to the shop so they can do something about it, whether it's replace it again, or take it out and throw a piece of pipe and do the old nonfoulers trick.
